Disney has launched an official theme park blog, providing news on Disneyland and the Walt Disney World Resort.
The blog, which can be found here, promises to offer exclusive behind-the-scenes looks at the parks' attractions. It is part of a new push from Disney to engage with fans, which also saw the launch of the D23 "official fan community".
An official online source of Disney news will be welcomed by many. The early posts on the site, which cover the Halloween events at Disneyland and the Magic Kingdom, suggest that images and video will feature heavily and that it will be a useful resource for those wanting to catch an early glimpse of new attractions.
However, it has caused a stir among Disney fan websites, with Theme Park Insider claiming that Disney has "knifed them in the back".
